We are creating a private website for members only, (vers. 9.1.1.) which has 3 levels of security for our members (not including ADMIN). We created permissions for the website in the assets folder as well as in the pages themselves (and child pages). We were testing the links for security and noticed that one of the restricted pages can be copied and pasted into an email or a web browser and it displays everything. No login shows up prompting the user to login and use a password. Is there something else the administrators need to do to lock this website up and not have its webpages accessible? I have included some screen captures of how it is set-up. It's a major security breach. HELP!

 

I WANT TO SEE SOMETHING LIKE THIS, AN AUTHENTICATION PAGE:

For any of the links.

please note that page and module permissions are not folder specific and limit access to the page / module options only.
Please be aware as well, that folder permissions are only checked by DNN, when DNN is processing file access, i.e. usually only for secure folders, access to all unsecure folders is usually handled by IIS webserver. I suggest creating a new folder of type "Secure (FileSystem)" and grant access to the target group exclusively. Access to all files placed inside should be possible for logged in users with proper permission only (using DNN Linkclick.aspx handler).

Thank you for your prompt response. I wish I had known that before creating the website and having to add SECURE folders after the 95% of the website was built and populated with links. We have a lot of hyperlinks in the non-secure folders.
Is there a way of re-linking them in the new secure folders so that it isn't an arduous and tedious task of basically relinking the whole thing?

unfortunately, there is no option to automate changing the links, especially, as the URLs are looking totally different.

I noticed each link has its own ID
